Nestled on 300 wooded acres along the shores of Little Island Pond, Camp Runels is celebrating 84 summers of helping girls become confident and independent leaders with the support of our caring staff. Our staff comes from around the world, bringing a wide variety of experience and abilities, and many are former campers who return to share the magic of camp with a new generation. The camp program is designed collaboratively by girls with the staff to create an exciting, fun and safe experience for everyone. All programs include swimming, boating, campfires, games, outdoor cooking, crafts and all that camp has to offer. Girls may also attend an optional overnight on Wednesday nights. For additional information: email or call 617-350-8335.
Hours of operation: 9 AM - 4 PM. Extended care available: 7:30-9 AM ($10) and 4-6 PM ($15).
Each day begins with an opening flag ceremony and singing. Girls then proceed to enjoy fun activities which include arts and crafts, swimming, fun sports and working on various Girl Scout badges and patches. The girls end their day with the traditional flag ceremony.
About the Directors
Sarah “Fluke” Leshay and Jess “Crunch” Barkley are excited to be co-directing Camp Runels this summer. For both of them, camp is a place where girls can stretch to try new things, grow in their independence and make lifelong memories and friends. They are passionate about creating a dynamic, safe and fun camp program at Runels. Fluke and Crunch are both entering their fifth summers working at Runels—this will be Fluke’s fifth summer as director and Crunch’s first. During the school year, both Fluke and Crunch are teachers.
